? >> afghanistan, tell us about this, sainl, launching a new tv show called "the ministry." from people i've talked to, they say it seems like the afghan version of "the office." >> that's exactly what it's supposed to be, the afghan version of "the office." they're even going to shoot it in the same way, this loose documentary format style, too. what they're saying is they're not just dealing with an office scenario, but they'll be focusing on the ministry of garbage, but they want to focus on important afghan issues like corruption. that is going to be a show to watch if you're in afghanistan. it's going to be on the main local commercial tv channel there. speaking of shows, ali, i was watching ""the daily show"," guess who popped up. take a look at this picture. jon stewart comparing, yes, ali velshi to, oh, no, an egg. >> an egg. >> an egg with glasses. >> good glasses. i want you to know i took offense to this, ali. this kind of upset me. i didn't think it was fair. i actually thought this was better. take a look at what i came up with, ali as the moon. how about ali as watermelon. >> nice. >>
or daughter, husband or wife is in iraq or afghanistan, might cost them their check if we get three or four or of six days past august 2nd. >> i heard you say earlier we're seeing a generational divide in the house right now, the results of a generational divide. >> no question in the republican party there's a huge generational divide. as gloria just noted, a lot of these 87 freshmen, they're not career politicians. they were car dealers, maybe they were prosecutors. some of them were farmers. they don't feel bebeholden to the speaker. they think the people telling them to compromise are the people who built the pile of debt, the miss we're in right now. they don't truss them. remember a lot of people are making fun of them. a lot of people say these crazy tea party party. why won't they compromise? they won the last election. the last time america spoke they sent these people to washington. so they think that's what they were sent here to do. now, maybe the public's changed its mind. maybe the president and democrats have convinced them otherwise. but they just in november won an election
afghanistan is also winding down and that's the trillion dollars they thought they'd save but they don't list anything with the harry reid plan and not to look at entitlements, how could you possibly say we're taking a hard look and making tough decision abouts the future of our -- of the country economically and not look at entitlements when even the president of the united states has had a problem. let's look at john boehner. he says, all right, i'll raise the debt ceiling. this is what i mean by a two phased plan. just a trillion dollars and we'll have $1.2 trillion in cuts by the end of the year. the future cuts will be commissioned and sent up after they commission a bipartisan panel to decide, you know, republicans or democrats to decide which will be cut and what shouldn't. >> and apparently, it would be along the lines of the cut, cap and balance as you can see right there. here is something that speaker boehner said why he cannot support the democrats' plan. he said the administration says they need all of the increase up front so he doesn't have to deal with this until after the ele
ten years and the expected savings from the drawdown from the wars in iraq and afghanistan is how they are calculating what they can save and the republicans are not happy about that and that is where the divide is. the real fight right now is trying to see where the winds are blowing with what is called the boehner plan. we don't know exactly when that vote will be taken, because there is a lot of head counting going on and maybe some arm twisting, too, to figure out if they can get it through. should it not pass, we are into another whole scenario of what to do next. >> kelly o'donnell on capitol hill. thanks. we want to bring in kristen welker at the white house. kristen, jay carney, the white house press secretary says that he does not believe that the default will happen. as we hear from the two sides both agreeing that the debt limit needs to be raised, it is inevitab inevitable. >> it is the one thing that all sides can agree on here, and you are right, the press secretary jay carney says he has complete faith that the debt ceiling will be raised by next week, but the big q
savings based on savings on troop levels in iraq and afghanistan. >> well, interesting enough while they're calling the overseas contingency operation dollars phantom funds, anderson, you may know they used those funds and put them in their own budget that they've already voted for and relied on. >> so where do you see this going? what do you think happens tonight? what do you think happens tomorrow? >> well, of course, i don't know what's going to happen tonight. obviously the republicans are meeting with themselves to see whether or not they have the votes to pass what john boehner has offered as a purely partisan alternative. we were not involved in those discussions. we were not involved in the decisions. and it's interesting that even in their own party it is deeply factionalized, deeply divided paint, divided against their leadership, angry at their leadership, and a party that is divided itself has difficulty working with the president or working with us. and that's unfortunate. and the country is the poorer for it. and the image of america is poorer for it. and i would hope that
